Real World Whitetail Behavior

( 5 )

Overview

Taking the controversial approach that deer hunting has become more of a "social event" than an affirmation of the more basic human need to subsist in the wild, Jim Roy proposes a simple, common sense method of stalking the whitetail that he calls "survival hunting."

Overview

Taking the controversial approach that deer hunting has become more of a "social event" than an affirmation of the more basic human need to subsist in the wild, Jim Roy proposes a simple, common sense method of stalking the whitetail that he calls "survival hunting." Some of the mysteries and myths concerning the whitetail can best be unraveled by observing the natural movements of the herd-not the more unnatural movements caused by pressure from humans or dogs. Roy breaks the deer herd down into its natural family groups, such as parental does with fawns, lone bucks, and single does of various ages, tracking their movements to and from their bedding areas based on such natural influences as wind direction and angle of sunlight. Based on over twenty years of observation at the Smithsonian Institute's Environmental Research Center on Chesapeake Bay, this revised edition of a classic will be welcomed by hunters and wildlife watchers alike.

    I think Jim wrote a fantastic book on whitetail behavior. I have taken some of his tricks to the woods and been successful. I like his straight forward approach and read his book every year before the hunting season begins.

    Hunt the right way

    If you had just one book to read about deer this is the one. Once, you understand the ways of the deer you'll be able to see and take more deer. This book should be the BIBLE about deer hunting.

    Excellent author with Outstanding Whitetail Knowledge.

    I believe that this book ranks as one of the best Whitetail books that I have ever read.The author is probably one of the most knowledgeable people in the Whitetail deer world. Everything that he says has actually been seen or have had happen to me.
